Jesse Lee ASP plans winter rallies

New and returning high school teens and adults interested in participating in the 2018 Jesse Lee Appalachia Service Project (ASP) should plan to attend one of two upcoming kick-off rallies at Jesse Lee Memorial United Methodist Church.

Jesse Lee ASP’s 2018 rallies will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 21, and Tuesday, Feb. 27, at the church. Participants need attend only one. Both are from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in Martin Hall, in the lower level of the church’s main sanctuary building.

Details will be presented about participating in this year’s trip, set for June 30 to July 8. Parents of new youth may stay and get their questions answered in separate informational sessions during the Feb. 21 and 27 rallies.

Appalachia Service Project is a national Christian ministry that sends volunteers on week-long mission trips to make homes “warmer, safer and drier” in West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and North Carolina.
